Sourcing & Packaging
Known for its exotic flavour, aroma and coloring capabilities, pure saffron threads are one of the most precious spices in the world. However, the best quality dry saffron threads consists of stigmas (Crocus Sativus Flowers), which are threadlike in appearance and red or dark red in color. In other words, the most important features of best quality pure red saffron threads are as follows:
- Red saffron threads (Stigmas) are all red (no other color)
- Dry saffron threads must be dry and brittle to the touch
- Saffron aroma is strong and fresh, never musty
And what is even more important, is the fact that flowers are plucked at wee hours well before the sunrise otherwise it will get moisture content, which brings down its quality. Additionally, it is the fresh yield of Kashmiri Saffron that is considered to be the best quality.
